Ride Description: This ride venue has a little bit for everyone. For the greenies there is a gravel road/jeep track path round the perimeter – venture onto some of the single tracks if you are so inclined. For everyone else, a whole lot of forest single track, some hills at the back fence, and a slick rock climb. There is a very technical track for those who want to test their skills to the limit. Don’t miss this one…
This is an informal ride so you will have to pay R50 to Modderfontein Central Parks Trails.
